John Y. Simon Obituaries Begin to Appear

by Brett Schulte on July 11, 2008 · 0 comments

Obituaries of renowned Grant scholar John Y. Simon have started to appear.  Hat tip to Brooks Simpson for pointing out the following links.  Brooks takes issue with the New York Times obituary, especially some of the comments attributed to Harold Holzer.  He recommends two articles coming out much closer to Simon’s home in Carbondale, Illinois.  For those of you who don’t know, Professor Simon was the editor of the long-running series The Papers of Ulysses S. Grant, now 28 volumes strong since the first release in 1967.
